    I also have this problem with my 2004 Silverado speedometer. Seems there definitely needs to be a recall by GM on this !! It is all over the internet.

    Mine will occasionally start out at 50 MPH while I am just sitting still. Then when I turn off truck...and restart, it drops about 10 miles each time till it drops back to 0 MPH.

    Is the speedometer a cable or is it a vacuum type?

EASY to fix it yourself, or by anyone you know who is handy with tools for less than $40.

This is a known issue and a class action lawsuit for the GM SUV's is already under way, but not for passenger cars (yet). The dealers will commit criminal fraud by pretending to not know whats wrong and will charge you to replace everything else first. Then rather than replace the faulty components IN the gauge cluster they will replace the entire gauge cluster for hundreds, then charge for reprogramming the old odometer readings into the new cluster. All unnecessary. If they wont give you a firm price with a guarantee to fix the problem complete the first time, just walk away.

Go to ebay and search for user MANDIGITAL or search for "speedometer" "stepper".
You can get a set of 6 replacement stepper motors for about $40, enough to rebuild every gauge, or you can even buy just ONE for less money. This guy also has a service to replace the motors for you but you still have to take out the gauge cluster to ship it to him.

These little plastic motors (the size of a ritz cracker) simply position the gauge needles by computer command. A tiny bit of soldering is required to replace each one, and you just follow the included directions. I did mine in about an hour start to finish. Works perfectly now.

Heres a dashboard disassembly with pictures.

Here the process photographed from start to finish:

Finally, for those folks peeved about GM, I will say this in their defense. These components are not made by GM, and do not fail until after 4-5 years of use. GM could not predict this. They should however, start replacing these clusters as its a safety issue. Also, it is not GM that rips you off at the dealer, its the dealer. These are privately owned franchises.

NTSB will probably get the recall to happen, but it takes time. Keep logging complaints at NTSB :)

Have you taken a CD that you have burned to another computer, to see if the other computer can read the CD?

Physicall your DVD-Ram is defective. I have encountered like this before and what I do is change it a new drive. No more hope to read such DVD but rather than CDs is OK.
It is due to not often use with your DVD-Ram. Before I check it in computer center but later on it fails again so I buy a new one.
It's said the Speedometer is the problem or the "EYE LENS". Can read CD's but cannot read DVDs.
Good luck!

No music on burned discs

You need to try a commercial cd of any kind. You just want to see if it reads the cd. Then you want to try a dvd and see if it reads that. If it reads the cd but has trouble with the dvd then the heads are out of alignment. It might still write a cd but not be able to write a dvd as that require more accuracy and it doesn't have it anymore.

You may still be able to use the drive but you will have to replace it. The symptoms you describe are typical of the driver going out of alignment so I would say you are heading for replacement sooner or later.

These are not cost effective to repair anymore so all you can do is replace them. Unless you can get it replaced under warranty you can replace it for under $50 at any local computer store.

Burns dvds fine wont burn dual layer dvds

This is in no way a proper technical answer, but certain DVD burners like specific brands of media, I have heard this for years and it's true, but you seem to have tried several types of media brands. I would try a -R, from Verbatum, if that doesn't work take it back and try a different model, you have done everything that you are supposed to.I found that the -R works best for me in my desktop and laptop, one is Lightscribe other is not, the -R works best for me.

2004 Chevy Silverado Z71, service 4X4 light comes on......

I've had this problem twice with my 2004 1500 Silverado Z71, approximately 65000 miles. The first time the Chevy dealer told me the switch was bad, but it always worked when I hit the button. They said it will probably just quit working one day. Well, that one day I was going about 60 mph and it automatically switched into 4 Low. Oops! Luckily nothing broke. The next day they put in a new switch for $150. A few months later the light came on again and I took it in right away. This time it was a bad encoder motor sensor. They replaced this for $350 and also put in a new switch just in case it was bad too.
